GREAT PLACE.

  • 5 of 5
We stayed a week in the apartment in May. The description on the website is accurate. It deserves the superlatives from the previous reviews. The apartment has all you need (plus extras; we appreciated the good design, the laundry, the W-LAN and the flat-screen TV). The apartment is newly decorated and well-maintained. The location is also perfect, in the middle of it all. Don't worry about the proximity to the cable cars, the glazing is good and they don't run in the middle of the night anyhow. Look out the window and enjoy them. We attended a conference for parts of our stay, and our colleagues were really envious...this is better than a hotel room ( the 30 bus or the cable cars take you to less than five minutes walk from the Moscone Centre, so it is really convenient if you are attending a conference there). The hosts (Nick and Melissa) were very nice and attentive through the whole renting process. Melissa's note on shopping for groceries in the area came in very handy, the hills are steep and you loose your orientation quickly if you don't know where you are heading so remember to print it out. The suggestions for restaurants were also good. For families (with kids with tired feet who just want to rest in the sofa after a long day of sightseeing) a suggestion for some good take-away places would be a nice addition! We will recommend this place to our friends.

Owner's Response: Indeed, the flat is much more comfortable than a hotel room! I love to give recommendations and I know many of the restaurants around town, so please ask me! Great suggestion for the take-away menu....I am creating one right now:) Cheers, Melissa

WONDERFUL PLACE TO EXPLORE THE CITY

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from staying a week at this wonderful property on Nob Hill. We traveled with our teenage daughters, 14 and 16, and used the condo as a terrific home base to explore the entire city.

The location at the intersection of two street car lines made public transportation extremely fun and accessible. We rarely used taxis, but instead explored by jumping from street car to bus to F line trollers, and this really gave the kids a chance to experience all of the sights and sounds and smells of the city.

I can't tell you how many times we walked out of the condo and literally hopped aboard a passing street car, the waits were very short, and the cars connect you to places that are either final destinations, (the wharf, the ferry building, union square) or bus or F line connections to everywhere else. We took public transport to these places, plus the Haight, Golden Gate Park and the Presedio.

The condo itself is very well appointed, and big enough to accommodate four adults comfortably. The kitchen has everything necessary to prepare whatever meal you want to enjoy. We ventured to local vegetable markets and bakeries and delis to eat "at home" on several occasions. It is very well sound-proofed, no complaints about the noise, plus you're staying in the city, we wanted to hear the sounds!

Some tips: You must get a weekly pass to ride the MUNI buses, trollers and street cars. You can purchase them at the airport at the SFMTA information booth near the baggage claim area for $29 for seven days. They saved us a ton of money, and made jumping on and off the various transportation modes very easy.

Safeway will delivery groceries for free (first time) and nominal charge. We used them to stock up for the week, and then visited the Nob Hill Grocery at Clay and Taylor to pick up odds and ends. This little market is really nice, the folks there were friendly and helpful.

Melissa the owner/operator couldn't have been more helpful or lovely as she worked with us prior to the trip, and answered a couple of questions during the stay. We followed several of her restaurant suggestions that she provides, and they were all great. Especially the Nob Hill Cafe, this place is just up the street and really great.

Highly recommend this place for families or adults traveling on their own.

WONDERFUL APARTMENT

  • 5 of 5
The apartment was lovely as per the pictures. The beds were wonderful to sleep in and the kitchen island made it so conducive to cook a nice meal. The location is just door steps away from 2 cable car lines and you cannot get any nearer than that. My kids simply loved to take the cable cars everyday. I would recommend that you buy a 3 or 7 day pass so that you can take unlimited rides on the cable car during your stay, which otherwise would cost you $6 a ride. 4-5 rides on the cable car would already made your pass a worthwhile investment.

Melissa and Nick were such great people to deal with and they made the entire check-in and check-out processes so easy. During my stay, my kids messed up the settings on the television cable box and Nick was so helpful to run me through the settings despite being late at night. They they would also recommend places to buy groceries and also good restaurants. Without them, I would not have tasted my best breakfast experience at Mama's at Washington!

Some minor points to take note though. First, the parking garage was rather small. I rented a full sized sedan and already I felt that the parking space was tight. If you have anything bigger, you may want to explore street parking or another option. Secondly, while the apartment is really nicely located in between the main attractions such as the fisherman's wharf and union square and suggest that you can walk, the area around Nob Hill has many steep slopes. So you need to factor that in. A transport pass that costs around $22 or $28 for a 3-day or 7-day pass would resolve this issue though. These are really all very minor and the attractiveness this apartment offers far outweigh the minor issues.

I would certainly stay there again if I were to go to San Francisco again. Highly recommended.

GREAT LOCATION FOR VACATION

  • 5 of 5
My parents and I enjoyed our stay at Melissa's & Nick's flat. The location was convenient and it seemed that everything was within walking distance (Fisherman's Wharf ~20 minutes, Chinatown less than 5 minutes, coffee shop down the block, Cable Car Museum at the end of the block, grocery store ~10-15 minute walk). Since the Cable Car Museum is nearby, the cable cars are accessible almost right outside of the flat. We really appreciated Melissa's availability in answering emails and phone calls (even on a Saturday while at her son's birthday party). It was a pleasure working with honest and sincere people (it also provided a peace of mind).

WHAT A WAY TO STAY....

  • 5 of 5
The flat was just as advertised, immaculate and well stocked for a weary traveler. Having a fully stocked kitchen and washer dryer available was also nice and gave us a homebase to explore from. The flat's location was great. North Beach and Chinatown were an easy walk and Union Square just a bit longer. Both trolley lines were right outside the door which made the Peirs just a ride away. You will need a little stamina if you just like to stroll and wander, as the hills can be quite steep depending on your route. Within a day or two (of our 7 day stay) we had the routes down pat and preferred to walk. We found some great little local restaurants nestled in the neighborhoods, where we would least expect them. Melissa accomodated all of our needs staying in touch prior to our arrival, providing lots of little tidbits of interest, and during our stay she made herself available to answer any question or need. She has filled a drawer in the kitchen filled with all sorts of information about the city and events. She was a wonderful host and I hope to do stay again sometime in the future.

WONDERFUL HOME IN A WONDERFUL CITY: WE'LL BE BACK!

Wonderful home in a wonderful city: We'll be back!
  • 5 of 5
We, a small family of three (51 and 49 yo parents + 15 yo son) from Germany) will remember this place as a perfect holiday home. We have fallen in love with San Francisco, and no place to stay could have been a better base than Melissa's and Nick's flat.

Our reasons why we rate the property with five particularly bright and shining stars are:

* The location. There's so much in walking distance: Chinatown, the wharves, the financial district, ... And if you don't want to walk up the hill again on your way back to the flat, two Cable Car lines stop right in front of the house. For destinations in other parts of the city, many buses stop nearby.

* The flat: It's clean, it has all the amenities and equipment you would need on your vacations, it's safe, and what is more: it made us feel comortable from the moment we entered.

* The owners: Melissa deserves an extra star for her friendliness, her reliablity, her excellent service - before, during and after our stay. Travelling so far abroad has been an adventure for us. But from the first contact, we knew we could rely on Melissa. Every detail worked out exactly as we had arranged and agreed, incl. the payment and very generous little extras.

So if you now read thru Melissa's description of the flat and the vicinity, if you look at the pictures, and ask yourself if they give a realistic impression: yes, they do. We found everything exactly as represented here.

Aren't the Cable Cars directly in front of the door quite noisy until 1:00 am or so? Yes, the are - but the windows really are quadruple paned. We opened the outside windows every evening to let fresh air in and then kept them closed. And the only thing that disturbed our sleep was my own snoring (that's what my wife and my son say).

Finally, Melissa's recommendations are well worth following:
- Do book a trip to Alcatraz before your holidays - otherwise the ferries can be completely booked.
- Nob Hill Café is a wonderful place for lunch and dinner.
- Mama's offers a fantastic breakfast: Be there before 8:00 am to avoid queueing (we saw 100 people waiting outside at 10:00 am, no kidding).
- Don't miss the Cable Car museum and
- last but not least, do not attempt to catch the Cable Cars at their final stops (at least not the lines between downtown and the harbour): Try the second or third station.

Many thanks to Melissa! I hope more guests will enjoy their stay like we enjoyed ours. And even more do we hope to be back soon!
